Substitute 40000 for shares, and $80.75 for Price of shares in Equation (I).
Equity=$40000×80.75
=$3230000
Calculate the total bond fund.
Bond fund=(Number of bond)×(Bond value) ......(II)
Substitute 12,500 for number of bonds, and $1090 for bond value in Equation (II).
Bond fund =$12500×$1090
=$13625000
Calculate the total fund.
Total fund =$3230000+$9000000+$13625000
